M1 Grand Muay Thai Championship: Saenchai, Ross, Yamato in the USA

  • Written by Rian Scalia

Tonight we have some rare Sunday action in Commerce, California. Stand Up Promotions has brought together a great card of muay thai fighters, bringing in some heralded international talent.

In the main event, Saenchai Sinbimuaythai returns to the USA and takes on arguably the number one muay thai fighter in the country, Kevin Ross. On the line are the WBC Muay Thai diamond belt and the MTAA world title. It's always a treat to watch Saenchai fight, as he's widely considered among the best of the sport. This is his second time fighting in the USA and he's taking on Kevin Ross, who last year he expressed interest in fighting. At the time it didn't seem likely but here we are now and they're set to fight tonight.

The 2010 K-1 MAX -63kg World GP winner Tetsuya Yamato also returns to the USA. The last time Yamato fought in the USA, he was knocked out in the first round by none other than Saenchai. Yamato will look to pick up his first win across the pond as he takes on the Thai fighter Coke Chunhawat.

The card features some other great fights so here's a look at the full fight card:

Saenchai Sinbimuaythai vs Kevin Ross

Jonathan Puu vs Alex Gonzales

Rungravee Sasiprapa vs Kunitaka Fujiwara

Phanuwat Chunhawat vs Tetsuya Yamato

Marcos Guevarra vs Victor Perez

Shane Oblonsky vs Carlos Ramirez III

Glen Spencer vs Mike Sheppard

Malaipet Sasiprapa vs Chike Lindsay

You can order the card on gfl.tv for $9.99. It's a great card and well worth the price. Muay thai is usually free for us as we pretty much only have YouTube to catch up on fights so a small fee of $9.99 isn't much to see one of the best in the world.
